My mom carves a pumpkin each year. Actually she usually does one big one and two or three dinky ones. She does a different design every year and likes to be creative.
I build pumpkins out of legos. I’ve designed a set of sorts that can be rebuilt into pumpkins a bunch of different ways - from a three-dimensional round one about a foot across, to a gigantic one a half-inch thick and three feet across, to a full dozen little tiny flat ones about four inches wide and a little tiny 3-D one two inches wide, along with a few other configurations. I have quite a bit of pride about these pumpkins because when you include the stands designed for them, all of them use ALL the pieces, with none left over, regardless of which configuration I choose.
I don’t have any place to display these guys, so I take them over to my parents’ place and display them there in their front window. I go back and rebuild them into a different configuration each week of the month, for variety and the fun of it. For the last week I have the largest 3-D one up along with his 6-inch 3-D sidekick; on Halloween they’re both lit up with some electric tea lights I found. The big one gets three lights inside it, illuminating the open eyes, nose, and mouth; the top comes off to get them in. The little one has its own tea light carefully built into it, illuminating it similarly. (That one is accessed from the bottom.)
I really like my pumpkins.
